We’re not buying that a PhD in American Studies from the University of Hawaii makes you a lock for the Nobel Prize. But, that didn’t stop the Abercrombie Campaign from posting this wad of self-serving twaddle online. “Neil has extreme brainpower having achieved the highest levels of formal education.” (Yeah, he’s much smarter than Hannemann, who only graduated from Harvard cum laude and went on to be a Fulbright Scholar.)
What is “extreme brainpower” anyway? Well, Atomic Monkey would like to present the pluses and minuses of this alleged “extreme brainpower,” AND the downside of crowing about it around us.
